A 63-year-old female with stage IE diffuse large B-cell lymphoma developed reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy syndrome (RPLS) following CHOP chemotherapy, with typical clinical and radiological findings. RPLS is a rare neurological syndrome characterised by visual disturbances, seizures, headaches and altered conscious level which has been associated with malignant hypertension, pre-eclampsia and some drugs, including ciclosporin. It has not been previously reported following CHOP chemotherapy. Alternative treatment should be considered for patients who develop this rare complication.
